The remarkable mechanical winch




Announcing Grasshopper - the revolutionary mechanical winch for model sailplanes

Finally, there's a great new way to launch small sailplanes! Better than a hi-start and less cumbersome than an electric winch, the all new spring-based Grasshopper winch launches HLG and 2m sailplanes like no other method.

Notice: We are sold out and not offering the winch for now. I have gotten very busy with my main business ( I'm looking for an entrepreneur to purchase this product line and continue sales and development. The business consists of the web site, URL, mechanical designs, parts inventory, brand name, etc. What could be more fun than a cool gadget that launches sailplanes! Price is $5,000 + inventory. Please contact me if interested - Jim Lewis
